I have a couple of questions for you all...
What is your favorite part of being a nurse?
What is or has been your favorite department to work in and why?
Thank you for your input. I look forward to reading your responses.
Have a great day!

What do I like best? My favorite specialty is labor and delivery, and the best part is when the miracle of birth occurs. I always feel it a special priviledge to be there and I feel that there is a Higher Power smiling on all in attendance. I also like geriatrics. Yes, I like 'em coming and going. I feel a special priviledge to be there when a dear person takes that last breath and goes on to the Great Beyond. I feel there is a Higher Power smiling on all in attendance. And in between these best parts, are all the times that I can do something for a patient that makes it "all better", and I get a smile, a thanks, a squeeze of the hand or, best of all, a hug. Families are also nice to relate to (most of the time) and it is rewarding when they are glad that I am the nurse on that shift. I also like the interaction with the staff, nurses, aides, dietariy, lab,. housekeeping, doctors, administration, etc.
You know what just dawned on me? What I like best about being a nurse is being a nurse!!!!
